The popular Spanish YouTube channel Pinofas has created a novel project: it’s an hero adventure quest live-action game that takes advantage of the new tagging, linking and commenting capabilities that YouTube has implemented, called Tube Adventure.
In The Tube Adventure, our hero leaves his house to buy some bread, but a vase falls on his head and gives him amnesia: he needs your help getting to the bakery, and on the road he’ll meet other characters which will assign missions, should you choose to accept them. The goal is finding the bakery and purchasing bread, and multiple endings have been designed into the game.
So far, the audio is only in Spanish, but comments on the video promise that next installments will be fully bilingual. The quest options and instructions do come both in English and Spanish. The game must be played inside YouTube for the options to be available, so please click on this video link to go straight to their page to play it. On their blog, Cordero TV:
Pues por fín, con algo de retraso, llega Tube-adventures. Ya advertimos en el trailer que no era ni un sketch, ni un corto, ni una nueva serie ni nada que se le pareciera… Y como podéis comprobar, no es coña. Se trata de la primera aventura gráfica vía Youtube.
So finally, after some delays, we give you Tube-Adventures. We already warned in the trailer that it wasn’t a sketch, a short, a new series or anything like it… and as you can see for yourself, it isn’t a joke. It is the first graphic adventure via YouTube.
